Birth Plan Basics
The elusive birth plan, we know you've heard of it, but what is it and how does it make a difference?
We will take you through the step- by- step process of childbirth, we promise to only teach you the things you need to know and to cut out the noise. This class may be short but it is RICH with information that only a full time Labor Doula would know. We have spent 1,000s of hours at birth gleaning this information, so that you don't have to.
You will feel prepared and ready to navigate your best possible birth experience with or without a doula. This class is perfect for busy folks who want to know what they need to know and don't have time for the rest.
